A total-reflection zone plate (TRZP), which is a reflective grating that generates a line focus of hard X-rays, was developed. Newly designed TRZPs, introducing a laminar grating concept, were fabricated with various zone parameters. The focusing performances with regard to the beam size and the diffraction efficiency were evaluated using synchrotron radiation X-rays of 10 keV energy. Although the beam sizes measured are insufficient in comparison with the ideal value, the maximum diffraction efficiency, measured at 20%, exceeds the limitations of conventional TRZPs based on a binary grating.
